Acting Through Song with Brian Michael Hoffman and Andy Hudson

    What makes a song memorable? Is it the vocal work? Acting choices? OR BOTH? In this course, students will work with a professional Music Director and Industry professional to explore the importance of physical freedom when singing. The course will explore connecting the dots between the notes on the page and the emotions they stir while we sing them. Acting Through Song will help Young Artists build confidence and poise while performing and will also explore physical techniques that will help performers fully act a song.
